That makes me wonder about waterblocks. I think it's stupid to pay $100 for a waterblock on a $200 card, but at the same time I want to add this to my loop for the noise reduction.

If you are going to do that, you can just get a cheap universal GPU block and use thermal epoxy to affix heatsinks to the ram and VRMs.

i guess thats why the xfx guy in reddit was asking about a water cooled or an air cooled version..

True, but that's way less than ideal. I wish card-specific VRM+memory only heatsinks were a thing.

buy a card that has vrm and ram covered in metal heatsink under gpu chip main heatsink.


example

even better example.

True, but such cards are normally premium non-reference so you end up paying a bunch for a fancy cooler you never use. If someone could make card-specific aluminum mem/vrm heatsinks for less than $40 they would make a killing.

Umm, Most of my reference cards have a plate on the misc components and a cooler on the GPU. Its the "expensive" aftermarket cooled cards that lack this.

This was how people were strapping CPU AIO coolers on GTX 480/580's.

rx 480 wont have reference card on market for much of time. this card woll have mostly custom solutions and even cheap stuff can have metal plate covering so called 2ndary stuff.

nah, it all depends on maker. MSI is giving this plate to nearly all midrange models (twinfroz and higher) and sometimes to even lower in range. asus cards see this very rare, gigabyte also.

Looks like amd saved us time finding right card smile.gif
